All you need to know about festival

  • Tickets can be purchased at each participating cinema box office. Tickets to screenings starting before 5 p.m. (inclusive) cost CZK 70 (including on weekends). Tickets to later shows cost CZK 90.
  • Tickets will be on sale from 23 February. You can buy the tickets only for screenings at the same cinema, there is no central ticketing. Please direct any ticket-related queries to the relevant cinema (contact information below).
  • This year we have decided to cancel audience accreditation as it has proven to be impractical and unbeneficial.

  • All festival films (except for the One World in Schools film screenings) will be screened in their original English language or with English subtitles.
  • NEW THIS YEAR: Children's corner in the Světozor cinema! 
    We operate a children's corner for kids from 2 to 6 years in the Světozor cinema beneath the "Terryho ponožky" store. It is open weekdays from 3:30 to 7:30 p.m. and on weekends from 1:00 to 7:30 p.m. The children's corner is operated in cooperation with Czech Television and staffed by teachers from the People in Need preschool.
    The children's corner is free of charge, but its capacity is limited. If you want to reserve your place, please contact us via e-mail or phone +420 736 751 533.
  • People with disabilities who hold a valid disability card do not have to pay admission for their companion. If they come without a companion, the price of a ticket is CZK 45. Tickets for seniors are CZK 45.

Why has audience accreditation been cancelled this year?

In previous years accreditation holders were granted free admission to the cinemas. But they still had to pick up their tickets at the box office before each screening, with no chance of reserving them ahead of time. Moreover, the number of tickets was limited. As a result we came to the conclusion that accreditation was more of a burden than a benefit, and therefore decided to cancel it completely this year.
